FOREIGN EXPERTS TO ASSIST THE COMPETITION COUNCIL
Experts in law and economics from the United Kingdom and Greece volunteered to share their experience and advice with the Competition Council. With a view to consistently enhancing the efficiency of its activities and having assessed the proposals received from the foreign specialists the Competition Council decided to set up a working group of public advisors.
Advice on issues of general economic and legal nature provided upon a request of the Competition Council by members of the working group of public advisors will become instrumental to the Competition Council both in relation to passing strategic decisions, projecting its future activities and drawing up annual reports. The assistance provided by the experts will be specifically helpful in solving complex issues arising in relation to major legal cases.
